Greetings Giok! I would welcome the opportunity to joint venture with your kampong herbal food hub project. I look forward to learning about your group's work. And thank you so much for your kind words. It really means a lot to me. As you know, there is no silver bullet to address our food crisis. It will require a holistic, all encompassing approach and one that will need to be realigned and tweaked due to our ever changing climate. Collaborations will be key. In a nutshell in order for us to succeed, we will need to have a mind set change about how we grow food, where we grow food, what we eat as well as the need to eliminate food waste. I've incorporated this line of thinking into my model as well as ancestral/tribal knowledge. I have witnessed first hand how resilient tour tribal communities truly are, Malaysia and Borneo included! They are more in tune with what lies ahead than we realize. We stand to learn a lot from groups like yours as well as our indigenous communities. This is a global matter and my sincerest desire is that this model is replicated across the world. With much respect, Tina.
